Special Weapon Effects

Smack 'em. – Improved accuracy under sustained fire. Increases elemental effect. Also intended to increase of critical hit damage but this effect is defunct.

Usage & Description

The Hyperion Bitch is the most accurate SMG available on Pandora. While the weapon card won't have increased accuracy compared to other high-end Hyperion manufactured SMGs, the handling of the gun is superior, and firing it will result in a tighter pattern (see Accuracy for more details). The Bitch also provides a big boost to elemental effect, making elemental Bitches a lethal combination of both accuracy and tech. While the Bitches are the most accurate SMGs on Pandora, they lack the stopping power to be used effectively from long range. Bitches are versatile guns, their special effect allows them to be more accurate during sustained fire, which could lend them to be useful in close-quarter scenarios. Bitches also excel in serving as Combat Rifle substitutes, firing from medium range in controlled bursts, simply due to the Hyperion material bestowing additional accuracy on them.

Notes & Trivia

  • The Bitch is often sought after for it's "collectors value", given the humorous effect certain prefixes can have with the title.
  • The "Smack 'em" red text likely refers to 'Smack my Bitch Up' by The Prodigy
